4th Graders love to decode and solve puzzles. They also need to know how to multiply a fraction by a whole number for the Common Core standard 4.NF.B.4. Why not combine their love of solving puzzles with this standard?

★ ★ ★ How It Works
★ ★ ★
Students first solve problems in which they multiply a fraction by a whole number. They also convert the improper fraction to a mixed number to get their final answers.
Students must then locate the answers for their problem numbers in a coded alphabet and write the corresponding letter on a line to form a word.
4th graders excel at finding shortcuts to challenges – but these worksheets really do keep the word secret until they do the work of solving the problems and decoding the word.
This is a multi-step, engaging activity that will help students master a Common Core standard.
These worksheets are ideal for test prep, or to challenge your students once they have learned the skill.
